Offering for sale a superb example of a Wrenn “LMS” alternative 4 Wheeled Ventilated Van, Wrenn model reference number W5030.

This red model was introduced by Wrenn in 1974 and production continued until 1976. The alternative dark red colour van was produced between 2002/08. The wagon is finished in with white logo and running number 59673. The item is complete with original box, inner yellow sleeve and packaging.

Despite their name, they were also used for vegetable traffic and could be used for general merchandise traffic. Hence why Bisto and Dunlop to name but two transported their goods this way.

Vans have been used on the railways since the late 1800’s primarily to transport live stock. With its decline due to abattoirs in the early 20th century, GWR converted these cattle wagons to transport alternative goods.
